Gents,

Tittle says all. Tamiya announced a new Sturmtiger plus zimmerit decal set over the Nüremberg Toy Fair today.

Glad to see the plastic hull

February 3 2017, 1:55 PM 

and those diecast metal ones are gone. The metal rods seem to be a better, cheaper option with less impact on the modeler.

Plastic hull...

February 4 2017, 3:43 PM 

...with the wrong engine access hatches underneath. How could they miss that.

Depends on what you can live with

I'd rather have some incorrect detail on the bottom of a plastic hull than diecast metal hull with proper ones.

Its a non issue for most people

I don't even bother to paint the bottom let alone worry about some trivial unimportant detail like an access plate. The metal hulls have been gone for several years now and at least some of the old kits with metal hulls have been redone with plastic now.

Metal hulls redone in plastic?

February 7 2017, 9:43 AM 

They have? Interesting - I wasn't aware of this. Which kits? Is there a way to tell on the box if it is a redone fit?

Hi Aaron....

February 7 2017, 2:53 PM 

I have the M10/IIC Achilles, and it has the lower Sherman hull in styrene, and I also have the Pz.IV ausf.H kit, and its lower hull is also styrene, so there are two. I'm pretty sure that all the Tamiya kits released in the past 3-4 years have the lower hulls in plastic, but I could be wrong, as I don't own all the releases.
By the way, the Type10 (JGSDF) also has a full styrene lower hull.

Cheers, Pat

Lower Hulls

February 8 2017, 11:00 PM 

Thanks Pat - yeah, I have an M10 with a die cast lower hull, same with my Panzer IV J. Not a big deal, just interesting to know they went back and redid some of the earlier releases. Not Tamiya's normal style. Love your 1/48 builds, BTW.

I have

February 7 2017, 8:52 PM 

sometimes wondered why they bother with any detail on the bottom at all..........but then I remember being at a contest where some guy was walking around with a pen light and a dental tool mirror checking out tank bottoms......I prefer bikini bottoms............
